Paws Across Pittsburgh is a 501(c)(3), foster based, non-profit Animal Rescue located in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome homeless, abused and/or unwanted dogs and cats.

We are an all volunteer organization with the goal of providing vet care, socialization skills and nutritional needs while living in a loving foster home. All animals that enter into the rescue receive wellness care, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, preventative care and a microchip, as well as any other veterinary care they may need.

Since our animals are in homes like yours, we see how our foster animals interact with our family members on two legs and four. For animals who need training, we use Force Free methods and positive reinforcement which motivates the pet while building a trusting, loving bond.
